In 1390, John Gower wrote an extended work on the seven deadly sins, Confessio Amantis, which contains the phrase, "and tuo han more wit then on." I believe in the truth of this phrase and put that belief into practice. Not only was this book formally edited, I shared my early drafts with anyone who would read them.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-11
Two are better than one,
because they have a good reward for their toil.
For if they fall, one will lift up the other;
but woe to one who is alone and falls
and does not have another to help.
Again, if two lie together, they keep warm;
but how can one keep warm alone?

John Gower must have read the Bible rather than Solomon reading Gower considering the almost 2000-year lapse in time. Put simply: they agree. A sober second opinion is never a bad idea!

"I've got something that's unique and new;

Instead of one head--

I've got two

and you know two heads are better than one."
